“The Chronicles of Narnia”: Occult Fantasy of a Closet Roman Catholic

 

Conclusion

 The movie is bad enough: occult fantasy supposedly delivering “the Gospel” in the form of magic, sorcery, and heathen mythology.  Hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of children, already increasingly paganised and opened up to the black arts through a barrage of occultism and fantasy adventure, most notably in recent times by the “Harry Potter” books and movies, will now be indoctrinated even further into pagan beliefs and practices – even while they are being told by “churches” that the Narnia books are Christian!  What spiritual confusion and devastation this will create in young hearts and minds! 

  But also, this movie will serve to boost sales of C. S. Lewis’ books, already selling in their millions.  Firstly, it will boost sales of his Chronicles of Narnia series.  But secondly, sales of all his other books will skyrocket too, which so many assume are “Christian”.  And thus there is a devilish two-pronged deception here: if readers turn to the Narnia books, they will be introduced to magic, sorcery, and pagan mythology, all the while thinking they are reading “Christian allegory”; or, if they turn to his other books, they will be taught the false doctrines of Roman Catholicism, and others, as if they were biblical truth.  Either way, it is deception, and they are steered away from the Bible into doctrines of devils.

  May the Lord grant, to His true Church, the grace to stand against the horrible distortion of the Gospel of Christ in the writings of this man, whether in his occult “Christian” or his open “Christian” writings!  Neither one is Christian.  Both originate with the devil, the father of lies (Jn. 8:44).
